Unfit to Lead

Asking a comedian to perform, in character, in front of a Congressional committee is just the latest example of why Democrats are incapable of leading this nation.

Stephen Colbert seemed more than willing to prove that point:

Stephen Colbert's routine as a Republican commentator on his hit TV show might leave millions of his fans laughing every night, but he failed to amuse lawmakers Friday during a House panel hearing on farm jobs and illegal immigrants.

Colbert stayed in character during testimony as he made light of his experience working for one day as a farm worker.

"America's farms are presently far too dependent on immigrant labor to pick our fruits and vegetables," he said. "Now the obvious answer is for all of us to stop eating fruits and vegetables and if you look at the recent obesity statistics, you'll see that many Americans have already started."

While some audience members laughed, most the members of the House Judiciary subcommittee barely cracked a smile.

"This is America," Colbert continued. "I don't want a tomato picked by a Mexican. I want it picked by an American, then sliced by a Guatemalan and served by a Venezuelan in a spa where a Chilean gives me a Brazilian."

I guess this is what we should come to expect from a Party led by a Hawaiian brought up in Indonesia that some feel is a Kenyan who has the economic views of a Cuban.

The important thing is that no one notices Coates' testimony.

Lofgren should have worn a red rubber ball on her nose and a pointy hat during the hearing. She is emblematic of the farce that the Democratic Party has become.

Maher, Colbert, Franken, Stewart: DEMOCRATICS, THE PARTY OF COMEDY.
But Bri is correct. While Colbert was smearing the Dems with shxx, Coates was offering testimony that the Obama "Justice" Dept. is officially raaacisst against white people. Coates testimony dumped a whole truckload of shxx on Obama's head and all over his black suit.
